Specifically, Ms. Nguyen Thi Le gave 136 medicine bags in District 3 and 240 medicine bags in District 5.

The Chairwoman of the People's Council of HCMC highly appreciated the spirit and responsibility of the grassroots force in the prevention and control of the Covid-19 pandemic over the past time. She hoped that the gifts that the HCMC People's Council gave to the Steering Committees for Covid-19 pandemic prevention and control of District 3 and District 5 would partly help these districts to timely care for people's health, as well as treat Covid-19 cases at home.

Next, Ms. Nguyen Thi Le visited 53 newborn babies at H.O.P.E Center and gave 256 gifts to these babies and voluntary nursemaids taking care of the babies here. Specifically, each gift package for the babies is worth VND1.5 million, and that for voluntary nursemaids is VND1 million and facemasks.

Here, Ms. Nguyen Thi Le said that while the Covid-19 pandemic in HCMC remained complicated, the work of Hung Vuong Hospital is extremely meaningful to support the families of pregnant women with Covid-19 cases to take care of their newborn babies. This is an action that comes from the kindness of women and the loving heart of medical workers and doctors.

The Chairwoman of the HCMC People's Council would like to thank medical workers, doctors, and nursemaids for taking care of newborn babies in tragic circumstances.

She wished the Board of Directors, medical workers, doctors of Hung Vuong Hospital, and nursemaids healthy and safe to take care of patients, especially women giving birth in the current Covid-19 pandemic developments. Because they give birth in a state of anxiety, medical workers and doctors not only treat the patients but also provide psychological treatment to help them feel secure while giving birth, as well as take care of mothers infected with Covid-19 to reunite with their children soon.

* In the morning of the same day, Ms. Nguyen Thi Le attended the launching ceremony of the comprehensive home care program for Covid-19 patients organized by District 3, the HCMC Young Doctors Association, and the Association of Vietnam Young Entrepreneurs.
